Do I have to deactivate my copy of CS6 before I do a reinstall of the operating system or, will it recognize the reinstall of the program (CS6) as legitimate and just install it with out any problems? I have never done this before with Adobe products. Thank you for any help you can provide. It is very much appreciated.
In Photoshop, Help > Deactivate
Then re-install the operating system.
Re-install and activate Photoshop.
Thanks for your time.
